Editor Hayne to Editor Kingsbury: Three Significant Unpublished Letters

Record #:
This article examines three letters written to Theodore Bryant Kingsbury, journalist and editor of the Leisure Hour by the editor of Russell's Magazine, Paul Hamilton Hayne. Hayne was one of two editors who had written particularly pleasing reviews of Kingsbury's work, and a long correspondence between Hayne and Kingsbury began as a result. Most of the letters were lost in a fire at Hayne's home during the Charleston bombardment in the Civil War, but the three surviving letters are reprinted here in full as well as some poems by Kingsbury and reviews penned by Hayne.
